Food Hack // Freezing Yogurt.


I love making drinking smoothies. 

I also like to buy yogurt and let it sit in the fridge until it is past it's expiry date. I become lazy and never want to put in the effort to make them. So, the yogurt sits, and sits, and sits in the fridge. I hate wasting food, so I am surprised I never thought about his before... frozen yogurt cubes!

Such a simple solution, and a brilliant one too. Using a small ice cube tray, spoon the yogurt into each section, place in the freezer over night (until solid) and transfer into a zip-lock bag (and return to the freezer)!

Oh, and you can freeze these cubes up to 1-3 months.

  1. I found a mini muffin tin that's shallow several years ago, and I use it to freeze yogurt. They're perfect for the blender or for my son to hold and eat.

    1. It's a brilliant idea ... lol ... I have thrown away so much yogurt in the past because I didn't use it before its expiry date. Freezer saves the day!
